Nearby Film Set - A Walk From Our House

There's always lots of filming going on around here, but a few weeks ago we noticed a film crew base in a field near here, with security manning the gates even in the middle of the night (we were returning from one of Sime's late gigs). We were told that it's a Tim Burton film as he'd visited a local Indian restaurant & we were intrigued. After bumping into some neighbours in the week who told us to have a walk along the coast path, we decided to go along to investigate with Hugo today.



The film is based on a children's book, set on a fictional Welsh island & is starring Samuel L Jackson, Judi Dench, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp & Eva Green.
Although there were only security guys around today.

On the coast path.

Looking down on the village.


This whole set has been built on the village car park - Hard to believe that this isn't a real building...

Nor this one...


These too are part of the set...

Sime tapped the grave stones & they are plastic...

The island name.

We carried on to the next cove - looking back on the village.

End of the road...

Hugo on the rocks...

The coast path towards home again...

A dangerous, but stable wood pile...

We think this is a Violet Oil Beetle.

Along the coast path are the beautiful gorse bushes - the flowers smell of coconut.

Heading back home.

Rope swings...

And pull ups...

Outside - looking in...

A splendid afternoon's amble!
